Help!
Help! How do you solder these motor wires??

I am replacing all my 6 motors, and when I remove the isolation from each wire, there is only cobber wire directly from the motor ?



Not so easy to see on the picture maybe, but the wire is like a regular Transformator wire.
I have tried to scratch away the isolation part, but the solder will not stay on the wire part

How can I solder this ??

need help right now.

thank you

Flux won't work if the enamel is still present. Your best bet is to sand it off as already mentioned, or use a knife and very carefully scrape it off without damaging the wire. Also be sure to get all of it, and not just one side. It can be tricky but it's possible.
